11' x 4'
Material: Wool with cotton wrap
Origin: Beni Ourain, Middle Atlas
A vintage Beni Ourain that balances a free form midsection of Berber symbols between strong symmetry in the end sections. The pattern is busy, but the creamy wool background keeps it from overwhelming the eye. The dye is a warm brown, showing lighter in some lines than others, which softens the design further. A long carpet well suited as a runner at the foot of the bed, in a reading room, or in front of the fireplace. In excellent condition, long pile, braided cotton fringe intact.
